What Is a Spiritual Awakening?

What does it mean to have a spiritual awakening?

I see many references on social media and the internet to having a “spiritual awakening’. Everyone seems to be having a spiritual awakening. And that’s great. But what does it mean? I see loads of harmful, fearful, and just wrong information out there.

The first association I often see people make is that it means your psychic abilities are growing stronger. This also seems to be what most people want. While it’s true that many people going through a spiritual awakening do experience an increase in psychic and mediumistic abilities, that is not your spiritual awakening. It’s not even the main part. Rather it’s a byproduct of becoming more spiritually aware.

A spiritual awakening is when a person becomes truly aware of the spiritual nature of themselves and everything and everyone around them.

That’s it. There is no certain path or required steps. There are no stages. You are having a spiritual awakening when you begin to realize the world of spirit exists and everything that we see is a physical overlay. Coming to this realization does not happen quickly or only once. It takes time. It will probably take the rest of your life. You are also likely to dip in an out of it. That’s perfectly normal. Meditation usually becomes part of it. Getting to know yourself and understand yourself apart from your thoughts is part of it. But you don’t have to do any specific practice to arrive there. However you want to do that is fine.

When you become aware of the reality of our spiritual nature you start to change.

You begin to see the illusion of the physical world. You naturally start to examine yourself and your place in the world and who and what you really are. You start to see through the illusion of everything associated with the egoic nature. You become more even tempered. And less likely to be buffeted by whatever whirlwind of drama is going on around you. I want to pause here however and let you know that your life will not always be one serene mediation. You are still a human being living in a physical world. You are literally here to enjoy the contrast. But while you’re here enjoying the contrast you have a knowing that underneath it all is the true spiritual nature of yourself and everyone else.

This will naturally give rise to a more compassionate state. You will care less about what other people think of you and more about serving them. Your fears of the illusory around you will be diminished you will grow as a soul and as a human being. I don’t truly believe that the term “spiritual awakening” can be categorized into any one thing. For each person a spiritual awakening is an individual journey. It is also not competitive. There is no way that one person can be farther on their spiritual journey than another. They are just on a different journey. It is being on the journey that counts not how psychic you are or how mediumistic you are or how compassionate you are that determines the value of your spiritual journey. Awakening to the spiritual reality and pursuing it as your journey is what counts.

Your Reading is About YOU

I answer a lot of relationship questions.  We’re all alike really.  We all want to be loved. I want to help you find that.  I have noticed there are a few things people repeatedly ask me. These things people ask aren’t really all that helpful for finding love.  Always keeps in mind that your reading is about you.

Asking What Someone Else Thinks About You

During your reading you may be tempted to ask questions about what other people are thinking about you.  The logic behind this question is that if the other person has interest in you then maybe you will get together.

When you have hung your personal happiness on a particular outcome with a particular person and can see no other way to be happy you are setting yourself up for a huge disappointment.

I feel sad for people in this situation. I have been there myself. It’s not a strong confident place to be.  It is a pitiful place of victimhood where you allow other people and events to control your happiness.

While it’s true that if your person of interest is attracted to you there’s is more of a chance you will get together, it is not a certainty. Even if that person and you have deep soul connection through many lifetimes you are not guaranteed to have a relationship with him in this lifetime.  What you really want is to be loved. You think it has to be this certain person but maybe it won’t be. Maybe it will be someone better.

Wanting to Know What is Going On in Somone Else’s Relationship

Or you might want to know what is going on in another person’s relationship.

This is not your business and has little effect on your life. You cannot control what other people do. As a psychic my job is to look into the energy surrounding YOU and help you to get where you want to be. If your happiness depends on another person’s actions you are setting yourself up for disappointment.

One question I frequently get is “What is going on with my ex and his new girlfriend?” The logic is that if it’s bad with the new girlfriend your ex may come back to you. Not only is this flawed thinking it’s psychic spying. Your ex’s relationship with his current girlfriend has nothing to do with you.

Wanting to Know The Future

Everyone wants to know the future. I get it. I want to know the future too.  If you know the future you can take action to change it. Unfortunately, the future is very hard to accurately predict.  There I said it.  A psychic prediction is giving you the probable outcome based on current energy if nothing changes. But we’ve all felt the energy of a situation change. And does knowing the outcome change the outcome itself?

But I suggest that it’s better to know how to CREATE the future you want. I do currently give predictions because that is what people want.  However, I feel giving predictions robs you of your free will.  If you want love then go out and find it. Ask God and your angels to guide you to it. But don’t surrender your free will to a psychic prediction.

When you develop a strong sense of who you are and what you are all about then you no longer need to hang your happiness on another person. You will then no longer surrender your power to other people or to psychic predictions. This is true freedom. This is creating your future.

With Love,

Can A Psychic Predict the Future?

Six Reasons Why Light Workers Should Charge Fees

Six Reasons Why Light Workers Should Charge Fees

As a psychic medium I am in contact with many other mediums, energy healers, psychics and light workers. The argument of whether we should charge for our work repeatedly comes up. A common perception is that since our work is spiritual we should not charge fees. I argue that this is not a good reason as everything is spiritual. We are spiritual beings.

Whether we are focused on the spiritual aspect of our existence matters not. It is who we are. We each have a soul. Therefore every, accountant, lawyer, doctor, ice-cream scooper, artist, housekeeper, etc. is doing spiritual work for his or her own soul's growth. My work as a medium is no more spiritual than that of an accountant.  We cannot be separate from the spiritual. We are the spiritual. I clearly come down on the side of" it's ok to charge for our work". Here's why.

1. This Is My Livelihood

In the United States where I live, anyone who wants is entitled to obtain the necessary skills and education for whatever (legal) job he or she desires and earn a living doing it.  Anyone. It's one of the blessings of being an American.  I am free to explore my interests, talents and abilities. Because my work is deemed "spiritual" does this mean that I do not deserve to earn a living? Priests are supported by the diocese they serve.  Even the Dalai Lama is supported by his order.

2. If I did not charge for my psychic medium skills I would have to work at another job that would not leave time and energy for mediumship.

If I were only giving my work for free, I would still have to support my family. So I would need to find another job to pay the bills. This job would likely not serve other people to the best of my ability the way being a medium does. It also most likely would not feed my soul the way being a psychic medium does. Additionally, If I were working at another job it would divert my energy and time away from working as a medium and helping people through my mediumship. I simply could not help as many people.

3. We Train A Lot

Just as other people attend schools and training so do light workers. Most of us are continually seeking to improve our skills and abilities.  While we may start with a raw "gift", as do many people, we train to improve it. This training costs us money and time. We pay for the training ourselves and often spend many, many hours and thousands of dollars improving our natural talents. A concert pianist may have a wonderful natural, spiritual gift of playing the piano. She will also spend money and time developing her natural gift. Should that pianist not be compensated because her ability is "God-given" or "spiritual"?

4. Everyone has a gift.

All special abilities or "gifts" people have are spiritual in nature for us to use. The gift may be intelligence, athleticism, healing, sewing, baking cakes, throwing a baseball, painting, sculpting, counting money, etc. Many people work using their special gifts and skills. Should they not be compensated'? Should a doctor be required to live as a pauper simply because he's using his God-given gifts of healing and intelligence?

5. Each Light Worker needs to Choose What is Best

Ultimately, each medium, healer, psychic, reiki practitioner, etc needs to decide what works best for him or her.  Most importantly, he or she should refrain from judging what other light workers choose.  Some may have the luxury of working for free or on a donations basis only. Others need to earn an income.  I can't say whether you should or should not charge for your work or how much you should charge.  What you choose to do is up to you.

I have seen very many mediums disparaging other mediums for "charging too much". They feel that when a medium becomes famous they often start charging too much. It may seem like a lot of money to me but that isn't for me to judge. I don't have to pay for that medium's services if I don't want to.  If people are willing to pay the high prices then that is what the service is worth. Like it or not in a free market society such as ours,  a service (or anything) is worth what other people are wiling to pay for it - not more and not less.

6. It's an Energy Exchange

Lastly, when we as light workers perform our work there is an energy exchange involved. Even if we are channeling our healing or messages from a higher power there is an energy exchange involved. We are giving of ourselves and our energy to other people. If we do not receive energy back we will find ourselves depleted. We will grow increasingly unhappy and and feel like we are giving all the time and being taken advantage of. Nobody wants to end up as a bitter light worker.  Not charging may be fine for someone who does it as a hobby. That's his choice. It's not up to me to judge if someone charges or how much he charges.

7. Bonus Seventh Reason

People value what they pay for. When people put energy or money into something they value it. The perceived value of the item or service increases. Conversely, people often don't value what they are given for free.  This is a well known marketing concept and is the reason designers are able to charge a premium for their items such as shoes and handbags. They are deemed luxury items. Is the item really worth more? The raw materials used the make the items are probably top quality but so are many non-designer items. When they put the designer label on it suddenly the perceived value goes up. That’s not to say I think light workers should charge designer prices, but then again who am I to judge what you do?

I hope I've clarified some of the reasons it's OK to charge for you work as a light worker. May you discover your value and most importantly value yourself.

What is the Difference Between a Psychic and a Medium

What is the Difference Between a Psychic and a Medium?

I received a really great question the other day about the difference between a psychic and a medium.

The main difference between a psychic and a medium is that a medium can communicate with the spirits of people who have crossed over to the other side. A psychic can not communicate with spirits.

What is a Psychic?

A psychic is someone who is sensitive to the energy fields of other people and can pick up information from them. They can theoretically see past, present and future in other people's energy fields or auric fields.  I say theoretically because it's not that black and white. Within the scope of the word "Psychic" are many, many levels of ability and ways to sense information. And psychics' abilities are all over the scale of accuracy.

Psychics get information in words, pictures, feelings, smells, tastes. Sometimes we just know something and don't necessarily know how we know it.

What is a Medium?

A medium is a psychic who has all the above mentioned ability but can also get that information from those in spirit. So as a medium I can connect telepathically and get information to pass along to the sitter I am reading for.

Are All Psychics Mediums?

No they are not. However, all mediums are psychic. In order to be a medium you must be psychic.  Mediums receive information telepathically from spirit and therefore are all psychic. But not all psychics are mediums.

Mediumistic work and psychic work operate on two different frequencies yet they are related. They are two different vibrational levels and feel a little different.

Medium and psychic can be hard to tell apart and even experienced mediums can struggle with telling the difference. When a medium is giving a reading it can be very easy to slip into the psychic and give psychic information without knowing you are now working on the psychic level and not the mediumistic level.

Mediumship Came First For Me

In my case I didn't actually know I was psychic until my mediumship developed spontaneously and much to my surprise. I had wanted to develop psychically and was reading books on psychic development when spirits started appearing in my sessions with my massage clients.

In fact, I didn't actually want to develop as a medium at all. It scared me. When I would be reading a book on psychic development, I would quit when I came to the chapters on mediumship.

Even after it was obvious I had ability as a medium I didn't feel like I had any psychic ability.  I started paying attention to it and realized that I do have it. I still take continuing education classes on developing both my psychic and mediumistic abilites. Working one helps the other.

So in a nutshell "All mediums are psychic but not all psychics are mediums".

Oh one other thing, I have noticed many readers calling themselves psychic mediums when they are not mediums at all. Unfortunately this field is filled with people who have abilities and little understanding of it.

Can a Psychic Tell The Future?

Can a Psychic Predict the Future?

You Create Your Own Future

Can a psychic predict the future? I believe you create your own future.

As a psychic medium, naturally I get a lot of questions about the future. People ask me about their relationships and their careers and all kinds of things.  People even ask me if they are going to win at bingo.

Everybody wants a prediction but I’m not totally comfortable with giving them.

I used to think it was because I am just not that good at it.  But I have since learned differently.

People mistakenly believe that being psychic is telling the future.  No, it’s not.  That’s fortune telling and is not what I do.

Can a Psychic Predict the Future?

I actually don’t believe any psychic can truly predict the future.  There I said it. Many psychics will disagree with me. But that’s my belief and I’m sticking to it. I have been to very good, very well known and very expensive psychics whose predictions for me did not come true. I have even had those same psychics tell me that because they saw those things they were already manifesting and I could not stop them.  Baloney!

You see, the future is fluid. It hasn’t happened yet. Anything can change at any time. Every single one of us has free will. Everyone. Even our loved ones in spirit have free will –  which is exactly why I can’t guarantee that I can connect with any spirit you want.

At any given moment endless opportunities and paths lay before us. We can choose whichever one we want to take. Therefore we create our future.

When a psychic predicts your future he or she is looking down just one path of myriad paths that you could take.  The psychic looks at the current energy around you and based on what is currently going on can see the likely outcome if nothing changes.

But just by visiting the psychic and receiving the prediction you have changed things.  Now you may change your choices based on what the psychic has said.

Additionally since we all have free will, if anyone else is involved in your prediction the outcome is even less certain. Each person you add to the situation complicates it.  Again the psychic can tell you the likely outcome based on the current energy but the current energy can change and other people can change their minds.

Should Psychics Predict the Future?

I believe the best way to use psychic information is to help you make more informed decisions. Or use it to help you achieve the outcome you want.

What I mean is rather than asking something like “When will I get more money”? Or “Will my ex come back to me?” The best sort of question would be about what you can do to achieve what you want.  That is asking something like “What do I need to do to earn more income?” or “How can I find someone and have a meaningful, loving relationship with him?”.

Unfortunately, many people don’t want that.  They would prefer to give all their power to other people and just want to know when the ex is coming back or if he still loves her or when the money is coming in.

Future Predictions Rob You of Free Will

Another point about giving future predictions is that it robs you of your free will.  What I mean is that if a psychic tells you your future you are likely to make choices based on what you believe your future outcome to be.

For example, let’s say you ask me if you will be meeting Mr. Right this year. I look into the situation and see that yes indeed it looks like you will be meeting someone in about 3 months. Since you know that you will be meeting Mr. Right in 3 months you don’t bother to go on any dates with anyone else until then.

But what if on one of those dates your date would have introduced you to Mr. Right? Or what if one of those dates would have been your next connection for your dream job? What if he would have shown you a cool new restaurant where you would hang out and make lots of friends? What if I was just wrong and one of those dates you refused WAS Mr. Right?

See how a psychic prediction could affect all areas of your life? You may think that you would not do anything differently based on a psychic prediction but you can’t help it. You have the information and it’s therefore part of your decision making.

So not only do I not believe any psychic can predict the future with total accuracy I don’t really think we should.

With Lots of Love,
